SALLY’S SONG

by Sherrie D. Larch 2 months ago in social commentary
Report Story

Dedicated To Victims Of Domestic Violence

No One Wanted To Feel Her Pain

In The Long Hours Of Her Need

In This Domestic Hurricane

What Is Ignored Is Never Seen

Her Neighbors, Family And Friends

Turned A Blind Eye

To All The Warning Signs Within

Ignoring Her Broken Heart

That Could Never Heal

Her Broken Spirit

That Is Crushed And Cannot Feel

No One Listened To Her Cries

Wiping Her Tears

No One Wanted To Hear Her Screams

Calming Her Fears

It Is Too Late For The Marriage Counselors

Nothing Is Left To Fix Or Repair

It Is Too Late For The Ministers

They Told Her To Stay In This Nightmare

It Is Too Late For The Lawyers

For A Separation From This Pain

It Is Too Late For The Police

Everyone Ignored The Crimson Stain

No One Listened To Her Cries

Wiping Her Tears

No One Wanted To Hear Her Screams

Calming Her Fears

It Is Much Too Late For The Ambulance

The Medical Examiner Is Now Here

Beat To Death By The One She Loved

This Time Her Injuries Were Just Too Severe

No One Listened To Her Cries

No One Wanted To Hear Her Screams

No One Holding Her Hand

At The End

If They Had Only Taken A Stand

This poem is dedicated to all victims of domestic violence, those that survived and those that sadly did not. Love should NEVER hurt. Please Seek Help If You Are A Victim Of A Perpetrator Of Domestic Violence:
